    I'll bet a nickel I don't have to tell you which one of these I think might be a satin proof. They're both graded MS67 (PCGS left, NGC right).

    From the view of the edge, it appears to be chamfered for a business strike, so I would not feel it is a proof coin. Pretty though. Jim

    Both are sweet coins but I agree with Jim business strikes.

    I'll have to track down a satin proof to see what the CoinFacts images aren't showing me.

    Thanks All

    They appear to be business strikes.

    +1 for business strikes. I really like the NGC one.

    Both are lacking in the strike for a satin proof, nearly all of which will show 100% full detailing in the area immediately above the braid ribbon and in the bison's fur on the reverse.

    The PCGS (left) one looks proof.
